on board basically. a deal that would avoid, for example, having to worry about raising the debt ceiling end of july, early august. is that at all doable? >> it is possible. i wouldn't go as far as saying doable now. but what i will say, the difference in approach now versus say two years ago when they tried this and it failed and it was, you know, almost the end of the world as the u.s. bumped up against the debt ceiling, the difference is they are going through what we call in washington regular order. everything is done in the open. i think that has lead to a different atmosphere on capitol hill where people know what's going on, they're voting on measures, and they're not waiting to see the white smoke from the white house when the president and house speaker and others are having private meetings that nobody is involved in. the fact that they didn't trust each other, then rank and file didn't trust them behind closed doors, that added to the problem. the fact it is happening in the open could help. >> at least the president is engaged in the so-called charm offensive, speaking with
republicans and democrats have agreed to continuely raise the debt ceiling that can exit. the next speaker has been an outspoken advocate to not raise the debt ceiling so our children do not inherit a debt-ridden future. the next speaker has been outspoken for the unilateral repeal for obamacare. [applause] more so than anything else, our next speaker is one of the most courageous conservatives in the country. she stands for principle, she will oppose a republican just like she will oppose a democrat. she's fighting if the future of the country so my generation can prosper. ladies and gentlemen please join me in welcoming congresswoman michelle bachman. [applause] >> good morning. good to see you. good morning. love you too! good morning. welcome, everyone. thank you for that wonderful cpac early morning welcome. welcome to washington, d.c. the epicenter of care and compassion. it is a very unique city as you know. you have to show a photo i.d. in other words to have a white house tour then they turn around and demand you put away your i.d. before you vote for the man sitting in the white hous
a debt ceiling debate that's going to be coming in the next few months. while they passed two budgets they haven't gone through the whole process. we could continue with a number of stop gap measures keeping government from shutting down until someone comes to a big agreement. host: on our line for republicans, go ahead. caller: thank you sir for taking my call which really enjoy c-span. i don't get to watch it much due to the fact i'm in school monday through friday. i'm an american government teacher and have been for the last 19 years and i have a question the for your young lady. i would like her to define the word politico. that's the first question. number two, what is frightening for the student i face daily and have faced for the past 19 we now the fact that govern by party, we don't govern by the constitution. ealthcare not mentioned in the document. not expressly or interntly mentioned by the document. if washington would have thought it was important, it would have been in there. secondly resolutions as you mentioned are not binding and all it does is increase the burden o
feel like we're headed toward this sort of late spring, early summer debt ceiling showdown. am i wrong? then from a policy perspective, can the two sides meet? >> well, i think it's important to remember that we actually have had two and a half trillion dollars of deficit reduction agreed to already. and in all of the votes that they've taken so far we've had significant deficit reduction and both taxes but mostly in spending. and i would say, you know, it does feel like groundhog day because we've gone through two and a half years. great movie. not so great when it's congress. >> not fun when it's real. right. >> but we feel like we have this, i mean, how many times has speaker boehner said one to one? i know it's tiring but the idea that we're going to negotiate the debt limit? i mean, i think it's -- the president should refuse to negotiate on the debt limit. >> he has in the past. >> i think he should hold to that position now because i think the challenge for republicans is that this whole debate has weighed them down as a party. their numbers get worse every time they go through
: there are all kinds of fiscal issues with the budget, with sequester and the debt ceiling, not far off. have you offered a number of ways that you think the federal government could be cutting back. your office is good at looking at budgets and plans. you have note aid number of things that could have been done n. liu of closing the white house to public visitors, but did you have bipartisan crossover. >> i had bipartisan crossover because they're getting ready to run for election. there is a game play in the senate. this administration wants to show the american public that we can't cut $44 billion between now and september 30 without them experiencing massive pain. they have every intention to make it hurt to get the point that we need to spends every penny we are spending. which is absolutely ludicrous. it's a shame they are doing that because a lot of things -- we are going to have air traffic control towers shut down. they are not shut down because they are too expensive. on average, they cost $wo.3 million less per year to operate. they are shut down to come back with unionized employees i
to be agreement in congress, but we are not there yet. we have a debt ceiling. while they passed to budgets, they still have not gone to the whole process. we could continue with these stop-measures to keep the government from shutting down until eight -- an agreement is made. , go ahead.ssee caller: i would like her to define the word "politico." americanught government for the past 19 years and we are not governed by parties. we do not covered by the constitution. example which one is not mentioned in the constitution. if madison and hamilton thought it was important and washington thought it was important, it would have been in there. resolutions are non- binding. all it does is increase the burden of debt of my students who are now in debt probably $50,000 already. they have not graduated from high school already. households are in debt to the tune of $150,000 -- host: you have given us a lot to work with. what level do you teach? caller: high school. 12th graders? caller: yes, sir, u.s. government. guest: host: if you go to our website, you will find information that could be helpful i
